easy 11 climbing to a boulder problem crux at the lip. The bottom half has a tall reach that may be a challenge for shorter climbers. Although sandy and dusty, the rock is bottom half of the route is better than it looks from the deck. The third bolt can be stick clipped from the adjacent boulder.


This is the leftmost of the roof routes and the only roof line that doesn't start in the crack.


9 bolts to anchors

Out of all the 12's on this wall I felt this had the hardest move out of all of them. And then it's back to jug hauling. Fun line b/c it has it's own start.

Outstanding climbing the whole way, reachy juggy pockets to challenging bulge moves to techy upper face. So much fun.
